[applause] ladies and gentlemen, it is now and high honor to introduce the most talented, versatile, and experienced leaders in american government, a man who serves our country by meeting the extraordinary challenges of our times. i am sure secretary of defense, leon panetta thinks on his days in the u.s. army intelligence where he received the army accommodation metal. he chaired the house budget committee before moving on to be the director was office management budget. from there, president clinton tapped him to be white house chief of staff. as directer of central intelligence, leon pa panetta me many critical decisions, but more recently, one particularly outstanding, and a public contribution to the defense
mccain said the other day this is the first time in 51 years that the senate hasn't passed a defense authorization bill. the problem right now, i don't think we will convince harry reid to change -- >> but the beauty and election you don't have to convince. you just have to replace. that's why we made a republican majority. >> given the people have in congress right now i would rather see gridlock than then getting to the kind of crazy ideas putting us more in debt just like raising the debt ceiling. you know it's coming again. you know congressman flake is going to vote for. maybe this time, maybe i stand corrected, it appears only. he votes for raising the debt ceiling when there's republican president. a rather than have these people and their content to march is done the same road we been marching down, we are better off with gridlock. we need to change hearts and minds. >> we gotcha. i want to know your opinion on the filibuster. is it being abused? should be done away with? it is not in the constitution. >> it absolutely is being abused spent do you think you think is probably?
are the events and they would have all failed all other things almost defenseless. you almost can't defense yourself at all and those things are true. all the banks would have failed. some of these banks -- jpmorgan is important but so is wells fargo. they did not need t.a.r.p. to succeed her they would make loans and do it they had to do in times of need for america and so it's hard to make the case. i don't know how to do it but i'm not going to give up. i love this country too much. i am not giving up. that is why i did some things like this. my chairman's letter, which i get help from the lady sitting right behind you in fact and my wife, but i describe capital markets. what is market-making? is market-making in lumber, aluminum, brass -- not grass, grass grass. [laughter] marketing is making everything. there was market-making in communist china and the soviet union. the markets in cuba. i don't know if people think. you can sell your goods for a better price over here, go over here. that is what people do. that is what each and every one of you would do. it's not like there is a moral
military in tunisia as a major issue. in libya there was no ministry of defense under gadhafi, and we don't even have a minister of defense in the newly-reformed, so curbing military power in the narrow sense of an army isn't the main issue in tunisia either, and i actually think -- excuse me, libya -- and i actually think that probably, you know, 95% of the 250,000 or so libyans walking around with weapons are trying to keep the peace, not make mischief. .. and the security forces and in defense of the regime that is where the action is, not in the military. you're the geopolitics guy. >> i thought the worst-case scenario for the algerian military is instability in northern mali. and you know what is going on in the eastern front with libya. i know that some troops had to be redeployed in the eastern front because of the, the traffic of armaments and drugs and other issues. this is the worst case so. >> i just want to take the opportunity to answer a question that hasn't been asked. but, this is something that i was thinking about. it's slightly related to your question but it's somethin
of strong national defense, of an opposition to unions and the defense of free enterprise politics and also in the sunbelt, and the south and southwest that we see the rise of the 1970s when we come in to talk about religious rights, the rise of evangelical and fundamentalist involve political process in a new political way. thurmond was at the forefront of all of those issues in his own politics on national defense. he was a staunch anti-communist and played an important role in anti-communist politics -- policies and was one of the things that led him to switch parties in 1964. here's a key figure in opposing labor unions and he did so alongside people like eric goldwater starting in the late 1950's even though early in his career he was a staunch advocate of unions in south carolina back in the 30s and 40s when the union felt was an important vote in south carolina but he switches in the 50s and 60's them by the 1970s becomes a die-hard supporter of business against labor. then he also had an important role in conservative evangelical politics. he joins the bob jones -- in 1950 and bob j
to tell them we just change your missile defense plan. he doesn't plan to go whisper to the president of france that mr. netanyahu was a pain, you know where. he doesn't plan to turn around to the russian president and say, just wait, once i have flex but i can do all kinds of things i can't do right now. he doesn't plan to stand aside when there's a major green revolution in iran, and the united states does nothing. we're supposedly trying to get the mullahs to appeal to what we're looking for, and at the same time, the very same mullahs know that when there was a real threat to them, we sat on our hands. what does that tell you about our credibility? what does that tell you about us? >> dov them you've written a book about afghanistan. you were the point person on the afghan account, during the george w. bush administration. governor romney mentioned of course the 2014 drawdown in his monday speech. what he didn't talk about is that it was a strategic partnership agreement that the administration had negotiate with the afghan government, which will keep american soldiers in afghanis
will be secretary of state or secretary of defense are a? >> the thing is in the romney camp as mike has been describing there is an array of opinion and there is an array of opinion in the foreign-policy camp. from um ambassador to postrel and many in between and i think he is more likely to go with john bolton but we don't know. >> and the wise person just mentioned there's a there is a possibility for secretary of state senator rob portman to become an important advisor, has white house experience under both 41, 43 and would be a reassuring pic. >> let me pick up of what judy said because i think one of the really interesting stories if romney is elected after the guy has been campaigning for the president for eight years but one of the ruin just in questions will be who is the real romney particularly now that he is not running and he will be thinking of re-election but he is not running at that moment for president and we don't know. there would be a battle in the state for the neocons and the foreign-policy and just let me me assist jarden, realist. whether it is selleck or john bolton,
is being addressed. as a matter of fact, we are using the department of defense and a coordinated effort, but i don't believe that we are going to turn the department of defense and to a police organization. we are using our military assets and a prudent way to deal with the introduction, and we have made some success in this area. 70 tons of cocaine have been stopped. but you know when you look at the drug problem, and it is a tremendous problem and there are no so easy solutions to it. it is a complicated problem and it's heading up the effort to try to create a drug free america not only will we utilize national defence and the department of defense we've got to get to education and education ought to begin at home and not to be reinforced in our schools. there is another thing they're will be more important than the premise of this question on a hypothetical of using troops. we will use the military assets. we are not going to -- we will use military assets, but we need to focus on another part of this problem, and that problem as law enforcement. and here is where we have a major di
of defense and the national security council. prior to becoming chairman, he served briefly as the army's 37th chief of staff. general dempsey is a bit of an unexpected appointment. he had just been sworn in as the army chief of staff a couple of months prior, but when the nomination process for another candidate stalled, general dempsey was called to serve a grateful nation, and he has done so with distinction. since taking the chairman's job a year ago, the 37-year army veteran has made headlines by dealing with the infamous quran-burning pastor by calling him up and asking him to withdraw his support for the anti-muslim video that sparked protests across the middle east. he expressed disappointment over the navy seal who published an unauthorized account of the killing of osama bin laden. he said an israeli attack on iran would clearly delay but probably not destroy iran's nuclear program. he has stressed the need to retool the military for a postwar world with smaller pentagon budgets, and most recently he has spoken about the need to turn up the volume on ways to help war veterans reint
and be our enemies in the middle east middle east wonderworks are not backed up by aids. when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut and we have no trade agenda to speak out. and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but opacity. >> host: it garnered a headline yesterday. hope is not a strategy. how much of his speech was against president obama and what he has done and how much was laying out his own trajectory and agenda? >> guest: well, i think in his role as a challenger, this really is about a critique of the obama administration. that is a common topic of calendars. the critiques of the president public foreign policy. there are differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are subsequent. much to the surprise, even some of his own advisers at the time, but rather than backing away from he has continued to emphasize that and say basically that he has emphasize -- emphasize that descending supplies into afghanistan, which has become a significant issue. we're example, >> that is a serious difference. there are others
help. the cia, the nsa, the department of defense, they know it's at the border sometimes come and we don't. so, the businesses have to work together in this to protect the american public so that we can stop cybercrime. but it's a big deal and it is going to get worse. computers and ten years would be faster and the calculations would get through quicker to meet that in every way, shape and form. the banks are pretty good at this. they wouldn't do this along time and all of the rules and regulations, but how many of you worry about that? it's the ciders to becoming over the internet. everything we do we know more about some of that stuff and you think but think of the person that knows your company from inside. that's what we are going to get. so. >> thank you for that reassuring point. there is a young lady in the second to the last row. >> how do you protect yourself from any one individual getting access. >> daniel douglas from the washington post. many of the rules under dodd-frank have to be written, so i'm wondering how much of an impact is the current regulatory environment ha
-being index in the children's defense fund for state of america's children series. this report complements its existing resources well be as many liable in the two data of these other materials. america's report card is unique because it assigns grades for each aspect, and overall grade of our children are faring in the united states. i also wanted to briefly think the advisory board, people who are a national acts. the recalled and then you can see they are, we cited them in the port. and they were very helpful in thinking about them finding the best indicators. and if you are here, can you please send appropriately? thank you all a very much. i was dennis johnson from the children's health fund and the national education association, who also just had a new baby. so what we have here is sort of a mixed bag in people talked about that. for some indicators, were doing very well by kid. so we are very close to the finish line on children's health coverage and what the work she medicaid, the children -- passage of the children's health insurance program an extension of the children's health insu
unions to a defense of free enterprise politics. also, it's in the sunbelt, the south and southwest that we see the rise of what we by the 1970's would come to talk, as the religious right, the rise of evangelical voters involved in the political process in important ways. so at the forefront of all of those issues in his own politics. national defense. a staunch anti-communist to play the important role in right wing into communist populist politics the late fifties and early 1960's. one of the things that led to switch parties in 1964. he was a key figure opposing labor unions. he did so well along people like barry goldwater. even though early in his career a staunch advocate of unions in south carolina. he switches in the 50's and 60's. becomes a die-hard supporters of business against lever. he also, an important role in conservative evangelicals politics. he joins the board above jones university in 1950. he does it to win votes. in the up country of south carolina. .. >> at 12:45 a.m. eastern, 945 pacific, reporting on the largest manhunt in modern california history. boo
collectively has legitimacy beyond its specific military defense security functions. to what extent does the army retain political legitimacy to be a political actor. now, over the last eight years, the regular army has been off center stage. it's been in the wings. by getting rid of the previous chief of staff who overplayed his hand, he has persuaded the regular army to stay out of the political limelight. and that's simple by the problems facing him but it meant that he wasn't the only game. the other was the head of the political intelligence. so the dr, departments of -- [inaudible] which covers the whole of intelligence services, has become more powerful over the last eight years than it was previously. and there's been this polarization if you like within the regime between the presidency and the drs, the two crucial power centers in the executive of the state. what that means is that one thing that we have to ask ourselves is to what extent the algerian army can make a political comeback. in the event that there is a succession problem in the drs. i think a second aspect of this
they came from government research grants. we have the department of defense which always wanted us to be at the very cutting edge of technology. we had the internet was originally a way for government scientist to communicate with each other. clearly that basis is sort of the big reason silicon valley got started and we sort of had this critical mass and created the fertile ground and on the job training and kind of the kind of interaction that helped us. >> guest: i would say it's possible. i'm skeptical of it. and skeptical of it for two reasons. when you think about the internet, think about all the commercialization of it that has occurred since 1992 or three when they came up with the browsers. almost all that has been done by private enterprise to very little of it i think was done by the government. and so the second is i don't know about you but when i think back to what i learned in school, all learning occurs on the job. it's highly specialized. and that you really learn by doing over the course of your career very little of which are taking away from school. that's the t
behind us the same words to pray the trooper said troopers our defense. these men put on their death mask and came at us with sticks trembling as with horses and releasing tear-gas. i was hit in the head by a trooper with a stick, had a concussion and i thought i was going to die. i thought i saw death. 47 years later i don't recall how i don't know how i made it past that bridge but i do remember in that little church more than 2,000 people were trying to get in to protest what had happened on the bridge and someone said something to the audience. i stood up and i said i don't understand how president johnson can't send troops to vietnam and cannot send troops to selma alabama to protect people whose only desire is to get ready to register to vote, to march from selma to montgomery. 17 of us were hurt and admitted to a local hospital. the next day dr. martin luther king jr. came to selma to visit with us and he said that he asked religious leaders to come. more than a thousand priests, rabbis came and walked across the bridge. [applause] so, we made a lot of progress but there are still
, the goal for china, whether we're taking people from energy, finance, technology or yes, defense, i say this. there is a global out there to win contracts and in that battle i believe leading from the front. [applause] but to get our economy on the rise there's a lot more we need to do. and, frankly, there's a lot more fight to be had. because there are too many people out there that i would call the yes, but no people. the want to say yes our businesses need to expand, but no, we can't reform plan. it's simple. for business to expand it needs places to build and it just takes too long. they will just build elsewhere. i visited a business the other day that wanted to open up a big factory right outside liverpool, but the council is going to take so long to prove the decision that they're now building the factory on the continent and is taking hundreds of jobs within. if we're going to be a winner in this global race, we have got to beat off the suffocating bureaucracy once and for all. [applause] and then there are those who say yes, of course we need more housing, but no to every devel
ruling with out anybody. the last defense minister was moved aside in the 1980s. he wanted to be the vice president, and he was not, and he was minister of defense. the regime never had any dealings with the opposition groups, the labor party and whatnot. they were just dcht have -- didn't have power and didn't have that relationship. whereas in yemen because the state is so weak, he always had contacts with other parties. >> do not exist in syria at all. >> no, there's no political parties there. you're not going to get anything. >> right. that would suggest it's going to be hard to do the deal. >> it's a negotiation between the regime and the west. the regime and the, you know, the rebel stand behind the west saying, yeah, okay, we'll do that, but, you know, the arab revolt, the arab spring, only in outside of syria, only in libya did we see violence. tunisia fell fairly quickly. the security forces didn't use violence against the protesters. just a few hundred died in egypt, and that was before the tanks were rolled out. yemen, he used violence as a tool to extract confessions. he knew
: congressman boswell? boswell: i i am a long-time soldier and i believe in strong defense, actually do but we are paying more for a defense than all the countries in the world so something is out of whack here. we ought to address that and we have a well-respected secretary of defense who recommended that a few years ago, secretary gates. i am on the eisenhower commission and president eisenhower gave us a little instruction in a couple of years ago about the military-industrial complex and it needs to be brought in. so i think we are out of whack. we have got to have strong defense, absolutely. that would be a good place to start. latham: i just want to say the defense department is on schedule for $437 billion of reductions over the next 10 years right now. admiral mullen, the former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, said that the number one national security issue for this country is our debts. it is not some other country. we are going to destroy this country from the inside and that is the biggest concern. >> moderator: my next question is about the debt. the federal krugman and he
enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. when our defense spending is arbitrarily and deeply qaeda. while i have a trade agenda to speak of and it is not one of partnership, but opacity. >> it garnered a headline in "usa today." romney's hope is not a strategy. susan glasser, how much of his speech was against president obama and what he stunned? and how much of slain at his own trajectory and agenda? >> mostly most was the challenger, this is a critique of the obama policy and that is a very common tax by challengers. there were some good lines. he talked hope is not a strategy. he's tried to emphasize his critique of obama as fighting from behind, which was sort of an unnamed administration official at the very end of a new yorker magazine piece last year and has become a sort of state of republican critiques of the president's foreign policy. that being said, there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. for example, romney has russia as an important geopolitical united states. much of the surprise of hi
-fly zone over syria sending arms of supplies to anti-government groups and bombing the air defense or sending troops into syria. so, we asked them about each one. let me give you a summary with a very quick comment. you can see that 60% support increasing diplomatic sanctions on syria. but what is interesting is 59% support a no-fly zone over syria as well. this is interesting because we can have a conversation about what that means, will the public thinks because you can see from the three categories below that there is only 22% support arming the syrian rebels. and i should say on that one there was a poll that was done also in june asking the same questions. by large, the results of the poll were pretty much the same with an exception that in between there was also a cnn poll conducted in august which showed a more divided american public on the issue of arming the rebels. and so, that could be changed from august. you can see that only 22% support arming the rebels, 21% support bombing the air defense sending the troops into syria? there seems to the contradiction of sorts in t
their your predictive you had a blog, i think you had a blog in "the new yorker" about the defense of marriage act and the way it would be reviewed and i thought that would be an interesting thing to bring at there are two issues to the supreme court of the same time and they both relate to same-sex marriage but the cases is a challenge to the constitutionality of the defense of marriage act. as i'm sure many of you know the defense of marriage act passed in 1996 says the federal government will not recognize same-sex marriages under any circumstances even if they are legal in the of where and just as married as any heterosexual couple in massachusetts. as i'm sure you know under the internal revenue code, money one spouse to the other but because the irs can't surviving spouse had to pay taxes on that money. there was a considerable amount so it was a very straight up challenge to that law. the other case that is heading to the supreme court is the proposition 8 case out of california and equal protection it loving versus virginia and the sense that can the state to ban this? the
ask questions. >> thank you for being here. department of defense. my question is the strategic rebalancing to asia. is this an attempt to contain china and given the geographic problems china has being surrounded by numerous ethnic states and not to mention india and hostile southeast asian powers the strategic rebalancing will be effective? >> i was in beijing recently and in beijing there are thousands of american businessmen and students and chinese students. you can't use the word containment because it has a cold war vintage that doesn't capture the complexity of the relationship between the united states and china. speaking about the event i think it was a natural occurrence that would have happened no matter what it was called for term because we are concluding two ground wars in one part of the world. in previous decades and centuries when the u.s. concluded ground engage in this often retreated into semi isolation. this was true after world war ii with the korean war that gave harry truman the political space he needed to send troops back to europe. we didn't want to t
they would say in their defense part we is they needed to put a jobs number on this to get it through congress. members of congress who spent $700 billion on a bank bailout were being asked to spend $800 billion that they couldn't go to their constituents without saying it would create three million jobs. the punch line is it did. unfortunately there was an eight million jobs hole and the word doesn't studies that looked at the stimulus and they're all very positive. but of course the situation was worse than they thought. i mentioned gdp had fallen 9% in the fourth quarter of 2008. that is true but at the time people thought the numbers were 4%. four% is terrible but 9% is epic calamity. there was our real debate in the white house how much this should be sold as a jobs bill. joe biden is one of the people who felt they shouldn't be numbering jobs. they should be talking about the new new deal aspects of it and sympathetic to that view as well. these were understandable mistakes but they were mistakes. anything else? >> [inaudible] >> give everybody a job. private enterprise has to g
are the cases of the naacp legal and education defense fund that thurgood marshall is actually bringing and he is building at sort of brick by brick, block by block or go thurgood marshall not yet of course the justice of the supreme court. he is making the case that plessy versus ferguson and, which defined the acceptability of separate but equal, they are making the case to the naacp that this cannot be, cannot remain the law of the land and it is pretty clear that the case that is going to become a very important one for the court and it's actually a year that rehnquist is there is brown versus board of education. which turns out in fact to be the case that strikes that document down, very very important in a unanimous verdict, unanimous decision of the supreme court. so rehnquist, part of the role of a clerk is to offer his advice and opinions to his boss about these cases and so rehnquist writes a memo about brown versus board of education and he basically says that plessy should stand. rehnquist authors this memo and gives it to jackson. jackson doesn't -- i am sure jackson read the memo
budget will be in defense but you're concern about market share on monday. nobody really has an incentive to invest in any research which will yield a day after election. typically the person been chairman of the board of the campaign of the candidate, there's two types of them i think of it. someone has done it before and thinks they know how to do, maybe has been doing over and over again and just perfectly happy with keeping things the way the worker or just someone who's never done before and this was somebody who would want to be a senator or a governor or sheriff doesn't how to run a political campaign. the more technically advanced campaigns are getting, the less candidates should be expected to sort of understand the mechanics of these things. and so, so campaigns usually are not places that are built to innovate and are not built to learn from their failures. so i look back over a special presidential campaigns using our reelection campaigns carve certain institution to they exist more or less for four years in some form or another. they been able to plant, budget over four years
from that, and it was deepened by the warren court's rulings in defense of the speech and association rights of communists which eisenhower also objected to strongly. at the end of his career or nearing the end of his career, warren did try to get cute with his resignation from the court. after bobby kennedy was killed in los angeles, i think warren saw quite cleary with the experience -- clearly with the experienced political eye that he did have that nixon was the likely nominee and likely to be the next president. there is no person in warren's professional life who he detested more than richard nixon. and seeing that that was about to happen or seeing that that could happen, e tried to resign -- he submitted his resignation and made it contingent, he said he would leave the court upon the confirmation of his successor. today, by the way, that is not so unorthodox. sandra day o'connor did the same thing in her resignation from the court. but at the time johnson was a badly-weaken president, he was not seeking re-election, the vietnam war was upon the country. it was the summer of '

't seen it yet. >> in defense of those men, the role hasn't been defined. it is not that they are messing up necessarily. they don't know what the role of male political spouse is. >> two women who were very prominent, hillary clinton and elizabeth dole, their spouses are very prominent politicals in their own way. they want to get in and say something in their lives as well. >> interesting discussion. we talked at the outset that you wrote about nine different women and how you selected them. are selected four that i want the three review spend time developing your thoughts on and three have kind of a direct relationship to the institute in kansas and one of them is the most prominent united states senator so each of you kind of took the lead on each chapter so if the person who took the lead on the individual person could starch and the other two can jump in, let's start with elizabeth dole. you did that chapter. >> one thing i want to mention about elizabeth dole, she was penalized as a presidential candidate, her preparedness. i don't know about you but when i hear a speaker or like s

in philadelphia and the other points in the ratification process. who writes like the sort of defenses and arguments that you see in the federalist today. who sits at home and giraffes the arguments that you see and letters? you have a staff drafting this. these are people that were engaged and they also want you to know these were not scholars, these were not people that had appropriated to themselves license to interpret where dhaka this great document. these were foreigners and business people, some of them who had formal education and some who did not, that they cared about this country. again when i go back to your book you talk about the written and the unwritten constitution. the unwritten constitution is really what we did. sort of trying to apply at in the evens and problems and cases and that debate continues on each one of those and that's why you see the different points. that's why your scholarship is so important, and one thing i like about the tone of your book is it is so positive it's refreshing. it's not all i have all the answers but do have some answers. let's talk
in substance and specificity. the gap between joe biden and paul ride in. from the defense budget attack, every single one of those it was like biden came ready to rall with lots and lots of nitty-gritty details. it never refrain, particularly the beginning was you like him you like him to you by. he didn't use those words, but that is what malarkey means. >> a lot of people at home, too heavy-handed. that's the thing is the audience is not washington think tank people, not fact checkers. people at home have been casually watching this and i also got a lot of e-mails and some twitter traffic about biden interrupt the martha raddatz as well. >> i have to be honest, i don't have to read the analysis. someone else will. >> i would have a tough time writing the analysis. unlike any other debate i covered, i don't know how people will interpret joe biden. as the interpretation that will happen with the specificity and facial expressions come in the jack-o'-lantern talk about, the praying athe heavens. the people say that it's real passion, joe bean show, or is it condescending, too emotional? to def
, they were not swinging for defense. the argument is to really be successful in a new way to open the new possibility in your field whether it is science or some other field you have to have this failure and error. that is what makes me see in silicon valley that there is a tremendous willingness, almost embrace failure. if you are an entrepreneur and have not had one fails startup people will get you strangely. you are supposed to have tried it and missed because that means you're taking risks. venture capitalism is predicated than 90% of investments will be failures and the huge successes. one of the things governments have to be better at, i talk about it a little bit in "future perfect: the case of progress in a networked age," you have to have a sense of experimentation. when you experiment you get things wrong, go backwards or go down false leads and you built up the acceptance of failure as part of the problem. >> host: in "where good ideas come from: the natural history of innovation" you have seven ways of innovating. you call them adjacent possible liquid networks, serendipity,
beliefs. he is a loyal alumnus and he comes to the defense occasionally. he's provided considerable support for the history project and he has delivered the address from time to time. he does not have a position and does not teach class's but when he comes he visits the class is particularly in the government affairs department whenever he's on campus to come and speak to those students, and i think it is really a terrific experience for them and a great opportunity for him. after he retires in 1995, he has a private life is in equally distinguished. he is appointed by the president and the minn grows into a special appointment not federally mandated but internationally mandated to negotiate the good friday agreement, and that was in 1998 and so what we have here are the players from that time period even before he was appointed in 1995 he's communicating with the press minister of northern ireland thinking mitchell for washington, d.c. and there is a ground work that is being laid for the subsequent negotiations and there is some difficulties the good friday accord are ratified and
's a centerpiece in in, everything is bad is good for you, which is defensive gaming which, if you listen to kind of conventional assessment of the state of kids today, this is a book, seeds of which started around 2000 which i wrote in 2004, 2005. there was just this default assumption, you hear pundits and people talking on television writing op-eds and would just say the kids today they're being dumbed down by these idiotic video games and they're complete waste of time and so on, so forth. here i was kind of generation that had grown up with games. i've never been a huge gamer i've always been interested in it. i had seen what happened in the history of games they had gone from pac-man and, you know, "space invaders" where, him pell little graphics moving a joystick back and forth to a game like" sim city", managing a entire met troll police and dealing with a city with thousands of different variables and setting your own goals and building hypothetical models in your head on how the system should work. that was such an incredible story of complex, increased complexity in the games. i knew t
court and do he basically said i'm too old. i can do this. he wanted to be secretary of defense. he wanted to be anything in government and this was gratitude that the relationship that was forged without question i think back in a time when thomas dewey identified nixon as a young political person. >> just one thing to both of those comments. i know after my father was nominated and eisenhower and my father met come eisenhower admitted that he didn't realize just quite how young my father was when he made the decision to be the running mate. i don't think he realized him he was 39, so he -- you thought he was 42? >> that's right. 39 years old. >> let me go at back to what david said about governor dewey. that's exactly right. isenhour's campaign for president was run by dewey, brownell and clay but do we is always staying in the background because he had run and 48 and 44 and lost both times and do he remains very much in the background but do he indeed invited nixon to give the keynote address for the link and a address for the republican party in new york in 1952 and at that time
tireless defense of our unalienable rights as americans. [applause] the second thing we would like to do is actually, i was hoping that i could really talk about this because i was so excited when i saw it again, but some very generous benefactors, when they heard we were going to honor brent tonight spontaneously like this, they said we want to help and we want to give something. but they are as humble as brent is, so we are not to say what it is, but norma, get the suntan lotion out and enjoy him rejuvenate for the next 25 years. [applause] to show you how unscripted arise, we were supposed to have the voice of god tonight call us at. could you have her the board of directors of the media research center. dr. fein, rebecca mercer, bill walton. mike tyson can be with this more herald sentiments, but i want to do one last thing. and that is, you should all have some champagne and ask you to rise and just join with the board ensuring that the staff of the mrc coming to think brent for his quarter century of work, his vision, his dedication. this is someone that works as hard today 25 year
want to get a handle on the defense of the problem. periodically something will hit local or national press. there's an interesting story about a teacher in ohio. what she think is lost is the extent this problem is how often it happens and the harm that is truly felt by the students and their families. when they don't share the majority faith. so one of the reasons we focused on south carolina is we had a case they are in chesterfield county where there was a whole host of abuses among them. there was one day where the school invited some local ministers and the school's stated intent and purpose as many kids and if you go to school suspension. we represented a student and his family. when the father complains, you go by the principles he needs to get right with god. lucky for us, the christian rapper actually recorded it all and put it up on youtube, so the proof is not as difficult in that case as it often is. it is a springboard to look statewide. we look at these nationwide issues come over right now we have this focus there. that is an issue that needs to be addressed by as and
, will make you and your family full text defense. but what they do? they go there, buy these houses, fix them up from a sense the to school. they make a big fuss and demand the schools get better. immigrants have a very low crime rate so you certainly don't have to worry about that. they create businesses. they had to drive back and drive back at night they do it. it's still, no matter how many 's the one current needs.a.ople it costs us nothing but his phenomenally valuable overseas. and you'd get people people to come here and they would sell those cities with the vibrancy and the people who are unemployed in the cities would all of a sudden have companies that can go to work with. they get jobs helping fix up houses. they been the schools, driving the buses, starting businesses of their own because they see how other people do it. other than that, it's immigrants that create the jobs the river was talking about the really are in need. >> i think that's a pretty art price to pay. cities, and cities go and there's great new cities being built, been added in other cities decline. actually if
and we try to use that as another teachable moment in the department of defense that there is this country dealing with that teachable moments all over the place with the issues and so, you know, this question comes up a lot what would your message to that policy? >> guest: this is so much to see. first of all the bottom line for me and not all native people feel the same, they think it's fine to have the native mascots but i don't. i think it's time for us to go. we are slowly moving in the direction in spite of resistance to it. some days we will look back as mascots or sports teams the way we look back at like segregated water fountains in the south and think how could that have ever been tolerated or defended? and the trend is to move in that direction and that is the direction to move. of course it is highly contested and it's not happening yet of raleigh everywhere. there's been more worked up a high school and college level. but to me the issues are really simple. it has to do with respect and if people feel they are honoring mothers or feel that they are
